The shooting of a prequel to Oscar-winning martial arts film 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon' is expected to begin in July.


Michelle Yeoh will be reprising her role as female warrior Yu Shu Lien in the film which has been titled 'The Green Destiny' and is expected to be filmed in Auckland, New Zealand, with two further weeks of shooting in China, the BBC reported.

'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon' is the most successful Chinese-language film of all time as it made 213.5 million dollars on its release in 2000 and had won the foreign-language Oscar the following year.
